Skateboarding, being the inherently creative pursuit that it is, naturally attracts some incredibly talented and innovative minds - Spike Jonze, Rodney Mullen, Brian Lotti to name but a few.
You're likely to find more creative nous at your local skatepark than in most of the advertising/creative agencies that churn out tedious bullshit for ridiculous amounts of money. With this in mind we've pulled together a varied selection of some of our favourites for you to check out, should you not already be familiar.
